Gammill Electric is a highly qualified supplier of 250 kW to 5 mW CHP (combined heat and power) cogeneration systems, providing a full range of equipment and technical support services to ensure maximum economy and reliability.
Cogeneration is a term used to describe technologies that capture waste heat from local electricity production, and use the waste heat to make steam, hot water, or chilled water for process heating, cooling, or air conditioning. This technology can increase the efficiency of
typical power production systems from 30% to 80%. Cogeneration systems are used for primary power generation, peak shaving, load management, power quality improvement, and standby power.

A Southern California manufacturer of plastic injection molded parts reduced total plant energy expense by $32,000 per month by installing a 1 mW cogeneration system that provides primary plant power,
plus 925 gph of 48°F chilled water for cooling molding machines. Payback for the complete installation is approximately 60 months.
